Happy Weekend Everyone & Happy Australia Day to my fellow Aussies.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. For some of us it is a long weekend, Australia Day falls on Tuesday 26th January, that day being a public holiday, most are taking an extra day on Monday and making a 4 day weekend. Lots of BBQ's and picnics outdoors with our wonderful summer weather.
I wanted to make a card to celebrate our special day. We are so blessed with such a beautiful country and we have so much to be thankful for.
A few years ago, I had some Australian flags on toothpicks for Australia Day celebrations, but do you think I could find them. Oh well, I made this one, I downloaded a small flag and added some wire. When making a Christmas card with this sweet Tilda I pictured her holding this flag, Tilda with Star Ornament- Winter Christmas 2007 Collection, perfect to fly our flag. I added the star to her blouse to dress her up a little and added some stickles. I coloured her with Copics, added my usual silk bow, gorgeous flowers, and punched out a few stars for some added glamour. Celebrate with Style Sentiment - Hero Arts, other sentiments - Hero Arts alphabet stamps, Cuttlebug stars embossing folder. Papers from stash - unknown.
Kellie gave all the MDU DT's this fabulous personalised stamp for Christmas gifts, I had admired them on some of the Magnolia DT's cards but was not game to ask where they came from.
Wherever you are, near or far, wishing you a magical weekend.
